7 tips for using your new Flyaway attachment

  • Dyson Flyaway attachment

    1. Hold it at the top of your head until your hair is attracted to it. Then slowly run it along the length of your hair without pressing down on it. To style the back, rotate the attachment 45 degrees and slowly run it down the back of your head.
    2. Use the cool edges to attach, rotate or remove the Flyaway attachment.
    3. Always use on the high speed setting.
    4. For thicker hair types, we recommend using on the high heat setting.
    5. To retain volume while smoothing your hair, we recommend using the low cool setting.
    6. The Flyaway attachment can also be used to create flicks at the ends of your hair, if desired. If not, avoid running the attachment to the ends of your hair, or go over the ends using the cold setting (cold shot).
    7. The attachment should be used on dry and straight, or straightened, hair.

Magnetic styling attachments

  • Flyaway attachment

    The ideal finishing tool for sleek, straight styles. Hides flyaways under longer hair to give you a smooth, shiny finish.1 With just air.

  • Styling concentrator

    Styling concentrator

    The wide, thin design of the Styling concentrator creates a high-velocity blade of air that's perfect for styling. And because the air is focused, you can style one section at a time – without disturbing the rest.

  • Diffuser


    Engineered to disperse air more evenly around your curls, the Diffuser simulates natural drying, helping to reduce frizz and define curls and waves. Longer prongs allow you to reach deeper into the hair, so you can style more hair with greater control.

  • Gentle air attachment

    Gentle air attachment

    Engineered to be kinder to fine hair and sensitive scalps, the new Gentle air attachment diffuses the air, creating a gentle, cooler airflow – while still drying hair fast.

  • Wide-tooth comb attachment

    Wide-tooth comb attachment

    Engineered for curly and textured hair, the new Wide- tooth comb has robust teeth to help lengthen hair as it dries, or create volume and shape.

  • Smoothing nozzle

    Smoothing nozzle

    The Smoothing nozzle delivers controlled airflow to help remove unwanted frizz and create a smooth, natural finish.

Maintaining your hair dryer

You can maintain powerful airflow, and keep your hair dryer performing at its best, by cleaning the filter regularly. We recommend cleaning once a month, or when the three white LEDs flash continuously.

How to clean your filter

Unplug your machine from the mains electricity supply and allow to cool down before cleaning your filter.

  • Step 1

    Hold the handle of your machine firmly and gently rotate the filter cage anti-clockwise.

  • Step 2

    Pull down and away from the machine. Use a lint-free cloth or soft brush to remove any hair product residue or debris from both the filter cage and the filter mesh.

  • Step 3

    Do not use water to clean the filter mesh, and try not to apply too much pressure when cleaning.

  • Step 4

    Move the filter cage back into position until correctly aligned, and rotate clockwise to lock before use.

Frequently asked questions

To maintain optimum performance, your Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer needs regular care and maintenance. We recommend cleaning the filter once a month, or when the three white LEDs flash continuously.

In salon environments, filters can clog more quickly with hair product residue, so it’s best to purchase a Dyson Supersonic™ professional hair dryer, which has a filter that's specially designed to meet the demands of a busy salon. The warranty on the consumer model doesn’t cover use in commercial environments, or if it’s used for more than two hours a day. If you’re a professional stylist, we offer exclusive pricing on the Dyson Supersonic™ professional hair dryer.For more information contact us here
